Flame effects.

What products would the community reccomend to encase a Gen8 character in fire? Think Dark Phoenix, or the Flame Atronach. I was thinking this might be a good base: https://www.daz3d.com/powerfist-plus-for-genesis-3 But it says Genesis 3, and I would definitely need additional effects. I'd like to get good tongues of flame coming off the skin. I got the flame hair from Renderosity. Would love to have my character go full flame goddess mode!

    Sadly, my photoshop skills leave much to be desired. I'm better with something 3dimensional. Like I can paint miniatures really good, but can't paint a painting worth beans. I can do Daz composition fairly well, but I fall apart trying to do anything inside a photo editor. Besides, I doubt these brushes would prove compatible with GIMP, and I don't plan on dropping the big bucks for Photoshop when I'll just be frustrated by my ineptitude. I've got a friend that tells me I should ditch Daz for Blender. I've explained constantly that creating a 3d model is very different from dressing/posing one! Though I do wish I had a bigger selection of render engines. I've got an AMD-based system. :( Would love to try the AMD-built render engine! I got beefy hardware that none of my software loves.

    I might see if an artist friend I know wants to take a crack at doing some post-work on a composition. He's pretty handy with Photoshop.

    The nice thing is the addons for fire are inexpensive and as actions fairly easy to use.

    I didn't mention before, but this would be used as cover art for a book. If I were just-for-funning it, that would be one thing. However since I'm trying to increase sales for my book, I really do need the best I can do. I'm just lousy in photo editors - partly because I'm color blind. I look more at contrast, and generall pick colors that I know work well together from people telling me and from color charts. The idea I had was of the flame captured in mid-transformation. Her tops half would be fully FLAME ON, with a blend to her bottom half which would be "normal." Alas, I think I have bitten off more than I can chew. I'll figure out something else.

  • There is https://www.daz3d.com/sf-auras-genesis-8-female but it doesn't have an option for upper half/lower half being flamed on.  You could do two renders, one flamed and one not and blend the two together with a mask in a photo editor.

    Maybe I could use a geoshell, and then render it transparent from a certain point down.
